    This is DevinSuperTramp's latest extreme sports video of barefoot water skiing behind an amphibious plane. Plus a couple of the guys actually do pushups ON THE WATER. I don't really want to get into the laws of physics involved with that, but I assume it breaks them. Have I ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger, more legible version right HERE. This is the Delta-V subway map of our solar system created by Redditor Ucarion. What the hell is Delta-V? A copy/pasted explanation courtesy of Wikipedia while I pour iced coffee in my eyeballs: In astrodynamics a Δv or delta-v... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy demonstrating Lenz's Law with neodymium magnets and a thick-ass copper tube. Why does the magnet fall so slowly? SCIENCE. Via Wikipedia because I suck at explaining things except 1) where babies come from and 2) RPG strategies. Eddy currents (also... / Continue →

    Seen here looking dapper as hell, 13-year old Jamie Edwards poses in front of his nuclear fusion set-up that was successfully able to collide two hydrogen atoms into a helium atom without leveling the school. This makes Jamie the younger nuclear fushion-er on the planet, and a... / Continue →

    This is the essay on Niels Bohr that 3rd period physics student Sairam Gudiseva turned into his teacher. As you can see highlighted in yellow unless you have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on here, Sairam managed to include the lyrics to Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna G... / Continue →

    This is a video tutorial from CrazyRussianHacker (of how to open a can with no tools fame) showing how to make square bubbles with a rig made out of cotton swabs. Don't have any cotton swabs? Then how the hell are you cleaning your ears? And don't tell me you bought that lit... / Continue →

    This is a video from the University of Tokyo of scientists using four speakers to levitate and move objects in midair. Unfortunately, those objects are limited Styrofoam balls, water droplets, and other pieces of barely there. I want to see them levitate a human. Or implode ... / Continue →

    This is a short video about the physics of fire ant movement produced by The New York Times. When poured through a funnel, the ants flow like a liquid. When a ball of them is pressed down, they act like an elastic solid. When a jarful is poured on the crotch of an enemy, tha... / Continue →

    This is a video of physics teacher Dan Burns explaining the fabric of space and gravity through the use of a giant piece of stretched spandex and some marbles. I enjoyed watching it. I don't know about you, but I'm a visual learner. Actually seeing something really helps me ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a cloud shaped like perfect little waves. Apparently the shape was caused by Kelvin-Helmholtz instability and not an air wizard like you probably thought. An air wizard! You're a crazy person. Let me guess -- you probably think ocean waves are caused by wat... / Continue →
